A russian cargo jet
I kinda went overboard on posting my photos, however I have way over a 125 “in-progress” building photos to choose from.
Everything went together just fine with all the parts, however I screwed up by not dry fitting the rear and front entry ramps before “Final Assembly;” (F.A.). I waited until the model was 100% finished and on its’ many wheel’s landing gear system, then proceeded to attach the rear lift gate on F.A. It fit into the two pre-installed bottom hinges perfectly. There was a long hydraulic piston system which was connected on either side of the ramp door and to the left and right upper inside’s of the fuselage. I discovered that these hydraulic piston’s that were in the kit was a bit too short, but I installed them anyways…’cause I was in a big hurry to finish the model…”HOW DUMB CAN A MODELER LIKE ME BECOME?” I did the same stupid thing to the front ramp…THE MODEL SET’S ON ITS’ GEARS PERFECTLY, BUT BOTH “RAMP” DOORS DO NOT SET ON MY FLAT TABLE TOP.
So here you have an almost perfect model built too fast by a modeler.
